What types of GO Cards are there?
Go-Cards come in two forms, anonymous or personalised.
Anonymous cards can be purchased from the ticket offices in the main bus terminals, from the Ticket Vending Machines at the stations or from the bus driver.
Anonymous cards can be used for pay-as-you-go (single trips and daily capping) and for the Weekly Pass.
Personalized GO Cards can be purchased only at the ticket offices in the main bus terminals during opening hours
Personalizing your GO Card with your photograph and details will allow us to identify it and find it for you in case of lost or being stolen, it will help us manage your GO Card account and transfer any balance on your lost/stolen GO card.
Personalized GO Cards can be used for all options, including pay-as-you-go (single trips and daily capping), the Weekly Pass and the Monthly Pass.
All GO Cards can store cash credit which can be used to suit your needs and convenience. You can have a Pass and credit on the card at the same time. All GO cards are re-usable and you can add more credit when convenient as you require.
Any money loaded on the GO Card will remain available to let you travel; there is no time limit, and the credit on the card remains there until you use it. If your GO Card becomes damaged, we can issue you with a new one and transfer any outstanding credit from the old one, to the new one. If the card is visibly damaged, you may be charged 500 fils for a new card.
The Monthly Pass is just 12 BD for 28 days travel and the Weekly Pass 3 BD for 7 days travel! In the future, there will be other options – saving you money when you travel regularly. The Monthly Pass can only be purchased from the retail office in the main bus station, the Weekly Pass can be purchased from the retail office, ticket vending machines, or from the driver.
Additionally elderly and special needs citizens can purchase a personalised Go-Card for discounted travel (elderly citizens) or free travel (special needs citizens). Please see the FAQ’s section for more information.
